Your heart breaks to see the total neglect of this place. It is in shambles, and will not last long. Those interested in Maratha history definitely visit it as soon as possible.

Would recommend to read a bit of history about the place before visiting this historic place. Wada is a architects delight, however the same is not maintained at all. Nonetheless it's a worth visiting place.

Nana Phadnavis settled the village and built himself the Wada with the ghat on the river Krishna during 1780. This 200 years old wada is an architectural wonder, where most of the movie scenes are shot like BajiraoMastani, Dabang, RRajkumar etc. The wada is now...More
